Three decades after their eponymous debut album, British supergroup (and Rotosound endorsees), Asia, are releasing a new studio album. Recorded with the original band line up (Geoff Downes, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer and John Wetton), XXX has been hailed as Asia’s best album since their classic early 80’s material. “We’re very pleased with, and confident about, XXX,” says bassist and vocalist John Wetton. “It encapsulates, lyrically and instrumentally, the essence of the band today. However, it’s the same four people that gave you the original, iconic album 30 years ago. If you loved it then, you will love it now.” They’re celebrating the release of this long-awaited album with an anniversary tour which is one not to be missed for die-hard fans. The album’s due out on 2nd July in the UK and was recorded using Rotosound strings.
